As a writer, I appreciate having a Yuletide likes/dislikes post for my recipient, so I thought I'd post one of my own in case it helps.

But, keep in mind that these are for guidance purposes only. Most of my likes are not shared by a lot of writers. I certainly don’t expect someone to go outside their comfort zone just because it’s something I would enjoy reading. And even though I may dislike something in general, I always keep an open mind. Well-written fluff or crack will not go unappreciated.

Likes: I really like slash/p0rn (explicit or implied) and dark themes, hate-sex, rough-sex, sex-up-against-the-wall, non-con/dub-con, handcuffs/bound-hands, blindfolds, hair pulling and just about any of the different 'plays' (breath, knife, blood, etc.).

Dislikes: silly fluff or crack, sappy romance, any of the characters behaving out of character (without a good reason for it), het sex and explicit mention of girly parts (although I can’t see that happening in any of these fandoms with these characters).

I’ve added a few more details to my original ‘optional’ section of my request, so even though the below looks like it’s just repeating, it’s really not.

Request 1: The Administration - Manna Francis

Characters: Val Toreth, Keir Warrick

Request Detail: Anything, explicit or not - if you offered these two then you know what they're like together. I don't care what you come up with as long as they stay in character. There can never be enough Administration fic!

Edit: 131016 - this was in my original request but at the last minute I changed the characters I asked for. I liked this prompt though, so am leaving it here. If Carnac isn't a character you want to write, just ignore this completely.

Characters: Warrick, Carnac

Request Detail: I love slash, and since it's part of canon, I can't imagine someone offering to write in this fandom who won't write slash. It certainly doesn't have to be explicit. They had a relationship years ago – I’d be interested in a fic exploring what they might have been like together back then. Any present day one-off between them would be great too. Carnac is such a complex character – if you’ve offered to write him then you must know what I mean.

Request 2: The Rifter - Ginn Hale

Characters: Kyle/Kahlil, John Toffler

Request Detail: Most of the action in the Rifter takes place in Basawar. I'd love a story between Kyle and John during their early relationship in/on Earth, or maybe an AU where John remains on Earth and Kyle is sent the message to kill him. What would Kyle end up doing? Could he go through with it, especially if he and John are in a relationship? Or what about John spotting Kyle in the Steamworks bathhouse? What if Kyle hadn’t just ‘disappeared’?

Request 3: Shadow of the Templar - M. Chandler

Characters: Bran Lindsey, Jeremy Archer

Request Detail: Anything with these two would be great, especially if you've read Cuckoo's Egg. It can be from their time living together or during the 'missing' three years after Cuckoo's Egg ends. Slash is fun, and since they're really not related, it couldn't be considered 'incest'. These two are pefect for some dark, hate-sex – Bran has never dealt well with his attraction to Jeremy, and Jeremy seems to have a soft-spot for Bran.

Request 4: Alex Rider - Anthony Horowitz

Characters: Yassen Gregorovich, Vladimir Sharkovsky, Ivan Sharkovsky

Request Detail: I hope the new book, Russian Roulette, gave some new life to the Alex Rider fandom. I’ve always loved Yassen as a character, and RR only made him more intriguing. I think there’s so much to explore in the new canon. Horowitz had to keep it clean for the general public, but there's great potential for some really dark!fic about his time with the Sharkovskys.

And if none of my prompts inspire you, no worries. Just have fun and don’t stress. I will love any story you come up with. Thank you so much for taking the time to read up on what I like.

Love this! I hope your writer can give you what you want! I'm trying to remember--have you gotten stories that work for you in the past? You can respond in email if you don't want to hurt feelings! Here's mine: http://winoniel.livejournal.com/3903.html.

I won't now, because I'm just getting ready to leave the apartment, but I would love to see the stories that you've gotten in the past. If I go to your AO3 page, will it show someone else your gift fics?

Sorry I missed you before you left; let me know when you get in. It's raining cats and dogs right now and dropped into the 60s (yesterday was so humid I had to put the AC on).

On AO3, if you look at a user's profile, you can see a gifts link on the left hand side. That is any gifts, not just for Yuletide, but if you review the gifts you can sort of tell. There's a 'collection' tag and if you click that, it will take you to the Yuletide year it was written for (or for whatever fest the fic was for).

My gifts are here: http://archiveofourown.org/users/hpstrangelove/gifts

Missing are the ones from the old site, here: http://www.yuletidetreasure.org/archive/quicksearch.html

You can look up any recipient alphabetically, which is nice.

As far as stories go - I've always received excellent stories, which is one reason I keep playing. This is my very first gift, in the tv show Life fandom: http://yuletidetreasure.org/archive/71/abasket.html

Now in general, I don't care for fluff or romance, but if you read this story, it's semi-fluffy and romantic. It fit the characters perfectly. It was a wonderful story. That's why I always try and make it clear in my letter that I will love anything that is written for me. Just the fact that someone takes the time to do it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside ;-)

As a writer, you know how I try and stalk my recipient, trying to find out the types of stories they like to read and write. I never want to write something that's going to squick my recipient, but if they like non/dub-con and p0rn, you know that's probably what I'll write.
